...with Video Scheduler, we can seamlessly schedule and manage desktop PCs and legacy devices through the same, simple interface.
Northeast Colorado BOCES adds Vidyo control module to Video Scheduler, Renovo Software’s video conference scheduling and management platform.
In late 2012, the Colorado Office of Information Technology partnered with Renovo Software to deploy Video Scheduler, Renovo’s video conference automation, management and scheduling platform. Video Scheduler is used at K-12 schools through Colorado Boards of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES). The Northeast Colorado BOCES will now be able to use Renovo’s Video Scheduler platform to manage Vidyo devices which were recently added to its video conferencing network.
“With the addition of our Vidyo driver, the Vidyo system at Northeast BOCES can be seamlessly managed, automated, and scheduled through the same web-based interface used throughout the BOCES network,” stated Ted Nafzger, Video Scheduler sales manager at Renovo Software. “The combination of Renovo’s video conference management solution with Vidyo’s innovative platform is a powerful tool for collaboration and resource sharing.”
The CO BOCES network utilizes Renovo’s Video Scheduler to control several Cisco MCU’s; Polycom MCU’s; and numerous Cisco, Lifesize, and Polycom endpoints across the CO BOCES network. Northeast Colorado BOCES has now added a Vidyo Portal for connections from desktop computers and a Vidyo Gateway for connecting to H.323 and SIP devices. Administrators will now be able to run reports, configure load balancing, manage access rights and approvals, and monitor and maintain live usage of the Vidyo system alongside the rest of the endpoints and bridges across the network.
“Video Scheduler has helped our districts leverage their resources across the BOCES network,” said Arlene Salyards, Director of Technology at the Northeast CO BOCES. “Districts can reserve classes, offer events and see what other districts are offering. The Vidyo platform gives districts more flexibility by allowing them to utilize desktop PC’s as endpoints; and with Video Scheduler, we can seamlessly schedule and manage desktop PCs and legacy devices through the same, simple interface.”
